Call for Papers - Special Issue 2022

Teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic: challenges and opportunities amidst educational inequalities


On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 as a pandemic, and different countries adopted measures to stop the spread of the virus. Some of the educational strategies directly affected school system structures and highlighted various inequalities in schooling provision across the globe. The pandemic has impacted students, teachers, and families in different ways. From experiencing the illness or the illness of a loved one, feeling anxiety or fear, to abrupt school shutdowns, food insecurity, school communities felt dire consequences in the new context marked by COVID-19.


Unexpected times called for creative problem-solving: educators, caregivers, and policymakers started developing solutions to tackle the inequalities faced by students, schools, teachers, and families and alleviate the hurdles associated with the pandemic. The emergency introduced further educational challenges, such as the abrupt movement of school practices to virtual platforms and unequal access to Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) for learning purposes.


For the 2022 Special Issue, CICE welcomes submissions on the challenges and opportunities faced by the school community during the COVID-19 and amidst educational inequalities. This call for papers is an opportunity to assess how the pandemic is affecting schooling and how different individuals, governments, and organizations are responding to the crisis.


CICE invites the submission of academic papers, article responses, and essays in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
